Sales is for Almost No One

I am fond of saying that, “Sales isn’t for everyone. In fact, it’s almost for no one”. Statistics and hard won experience tell us that about 75% of people who are in a sales job ought to be doing something else. Simply put they suck at the job of selling. It’s not their fault! They just don’t have the make-up to be salespeople. These folks shouldn’t feel bad. It’s a very small segment of the overall population that has what it takes to be successful in sales.
